Cheenook the Holsteiner Stallion?
So, we're hopefully importing a show jumper by Cheenook in two weeks (if the vetting goes well) and I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little bit about him.
I would post pictures of the new boy, but I don't have any, just a video.
hi Supermane, I just googled him so I can`t really tell you anything new, but he seems lovely and I really like his pedigree!:D. So congratulations to you and I hope all goes well with the vet check.
I own a horse by Cheenook...
Hi Supermane. I was browsing and noticed your post. I imported a son of Cheenook in 2003. Cheenook was #1 leading hunter sire in 2008 for the USEF and #2 in 2007. His progeny have made their mark in the hunters in America and the jumpers in Europe. When I bought my stud, his sisters were selling 150,000 Euros each, so I was delighted to find a suitable horse for myself. If you have any questions, I'm happy to answer or talk "horse" with you.
He's related to my guy then - through the Cor de la Bryere line.
Interesting that Cheenook was trained in dressage but still produces jumping offspring. This speaks to his rideability.
Good luck! What is the dam line?
He's yet to get here, so I haven't gotten a good look at his papers yet. Though he's suppose to getting picked up from holding in New York tomorrow around 10 am. I'll recheck when I can, I'm sure I'll be just as curious about the damsire.
The trainer that went out to ride him said my new boy was super easy to ride. He went around to every jump with a loopy rein, so I think he might have passed on the rideability. Though, I guess I'll see when I finally get to ride him later this week.
I tracked down a dressage video of Cheenok from a site:
Thanks for the info holsteinerpride, I actually got him as a Hunter/Equitation mount so it's nice to see that Cheenook has produced nice hunters. I'm a little sad to see he was put down a few years ago.
Yes, the sire was trained in dressage (this is why I'm saying it's good for his ridability. It takes a very ridable horse to do PSG dressage!) But he produces a lot of jumpers as he is all jumping lines. He could have jumped, but it is far more impressive that he is so ridable they can do dressage on him.
When's he coming home?? :D
Arrived at 7 tonight and he's prettier than I thought he'd be. There is a picture taken with a cell phone in my barn, but it doesn't do him justice at all. It was too dark to take any better photos though.
